As we all know, MDMA causes the brain to release a large supply of seretonin, a chemical that can have a direct relation to depression and a wide variety of other mental disorders. My ponderable is whether or not a very small amount of MDMA in the morning (possibly 5-10mg), followed by 100mg or so of 5-HTP could be an effective treatment for such disorders. If a regular dose of MDMA (appx. 100mg) causes such a rapid release of seretonin, perhaps a smaller amount would release enough seretonin to medically help a sufferer of mental disorders where lack of seretonin is thought to be the problem. The 5-HTP would be used to help the brain replenish its supply of seretonin. Of course if this theory were to ever be tested and perfected, the dosage would have to tampered with, as well as figuring out if there would be any side effects (seretonin syndrome, possible neurotoxicity from long-term use, etc.). Any insights on the subject?
